The Sipi Falls in Uganda is a set of 3 beautiful waterfalls. Hiking to visit each of the falls is an amazing experience, that includes going into a cave behind one of the sparkling waterfalls where you catch this mysterious feeling while gazing through the curtain of thunderous falls in front of you!

You tell him what you want and he will make it happen. He showed us amazing sights. The journey of our life. This is Africa. Roland is an easy-going Dutch gentleman, who speaks fluent Dutch, English and German; he is incredibly knowledgeable about the African Wildlife, it is his passion. His car is perfect to discover the beautiful African Savanna. Roland will keep you safe and give you an amazing
experience. He is always there if you need him. Everything runs smooth with Roland Safaris.

Roland has arranged the tour for us and ,also the permits for the gorilla tracking. You will be picked up from the airport.

Roland gave  us several important tips:
1) wear good walking shoes
2) put your long pants into your insect repellent socks
3 )wear shirt with long sleeves
4) wear garden gloves
5) take  2-3 l water and some snacks with you
6) hire a carrier or porter
7) take a rain coat and a pet or hat with you
8) have some cash money for the carrrier etc.
We did an excellent gorilla tracking during  the high season (December US$ 600 dry weather). You should do it al least once in your life time.  If you can,from the scenery hill in the impenetrable forest.  Coming face to face with the gorillas is one of a lifetime experience. You won't regret it. You cannot explain it in words, it is so unbelievable. The price is worth for the experience of meeting with a silverback and his family of fifteen.

Before the tracking starts, you get a briefing from a ranger about the ''do's and don'ts.''

You can go with maxium 8 people to a gorilla family.A good condition is required because it is an extensive walk. The hiking can take from one hour up to 10 hours. Strenuous climbing up and down mountains, but worth every single step! The carriers(US$15) not only carry your backpack, but also help you  through the forest. These are local people, who earn a living this way. We have visited the KAHUNGYE family. The guides and trackers are excellent and very professional, they certainly get you up close and personal with the gorillas. We hiked for 6 hours in thick forest. The thrill of encountering the gorillas in their habitat is amazing. In the early morning scouts are going into the forest to track the last location of the gorillas. These scouts are in contact with the ranger group by walkie talkies. We met the gorillas at a distance of less than 2 meter, such a unique experience. At the end you can get a certificate that you have tracked the gorillas and succeed this beautiful trip. WOW!!!!!!
